Event description

Description

Digital media have transformed how information is disseminated to the public and how politicians target potential voters, leading to fears of ‘fake news’ manipulating public opinion. Are these fears warranted? John Rust, director of the Cambridge Psychometrics Centre, will talk about their controversial work in predicting how voters think and choose, and UEA political theorist Alan Finlayson will respond.

These free events, held in partnership with Writers’ Centre Norwich, are open to everyone, and no prior knowledge is needed. The speakers will talk briefly and then the audience are invited to ask questions and offer opinions as the discussion opens up.

This year's series will be relocating temporarily to the Millennium Library at The Forum, while Dragon Hall undergoes renovation to open as the National Centre for Writing in summer 2018.

All events start at 7.30pm and should last until 9.30pm, or when the energy dries up!
